Illinois State University Provost Janet Krejci appointed Jana Albrecht as interim associate vice president for Enrollment Management. She will replace Troy Johnson, who has accepted a position in Texas.
Albrecht has served as the University’s director of the Office of Financial Aid since 2008. Coming to Illinois State in 2000, she also held the positions as assistant and associate director of Financial Aid before being named director. Albrecht arrived at Illinois State after working for several years at Millikin University.
“Jana’s experience and knowledge are a great asset to us at Illinois State,” said Krejci. “Her dedicated leadership has proven invaluable over the years, and her wisdom will keep us on a path of excellence.”
With more than 20 years of experience in higher education, Albrecht is a past president of the Illinois Association of Financial Aid Administrators, and is the secretary of the Midwest Association of Financial Aid Administrators. She is a graduate of the 2013 class of the Leadership Initiative at Illinois State University.
Albrecht is in her last semester of coursework for a Ph.D. in higher education at Illinois State. She earned an MBA from Illinois State, and a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Millikin.
Bridget Curl will take over as interim director of the Financial Aid Office.
